  1. Thanks to everyone who has replied to my post πŸ™ŒπŸ» My limited understanding is that I can change the configuration of a NIHM pack to stack the cells differently so I will investigate with the dimensions to see if I can get it to work. I was looking at the cell sizes and I assume if I drop below the standard sub C there will be a performance drop? The idea was to try and avoid needing to buy new chargers etc and just create a pack I could use in more modern buggies that only take shortie packs until I am ready to make the leap to LiPo throughout the fleet. Perhaps I will consider the LiFe batteries as a trade off. Although I will probably need new chargers then anyway so would perhaps be better just jumping to a LiPo to try? Perhaps a hard case and a batbox might make me feel more relaxed??
  2. Hi everyone, Looking for some advice here. I am fully aware of the debate on NIMH vs LiPo performance but for my requirements at the moment I am only planning on using NIMH batteries. Looking at some higher end RCs I notice they are fully designed for shortie LiPo batteries these days. Is it possible to build a 6 cell NIMH that would fit or am I just going to have to wait until I am ready to upgrade all of my batteries to LiPo? Any ideas would be great. I have been looking at the Team Associated and Schumacher race buggies but don’t want to commit and then find I have no choice but to go LiPo. Thanks Tamiyaclub members πŸ™ŒπŸ»
  3. Tamiya M05RA hits the track this week. Can it beat out the Grasshopper???
  4. TT-02B is a good shout but you could also consider that a few stores have the Thunder Dragon going under Β£150 these days. Worth considering for that extra Β£30. I have a TT-02b and it is great fun and will be fine in your back garden
  5. We are back out on the track now as the weather here in the UK has become fair. This week it was the Vintage Kyosho Raider from the late 80s. My first RC car and I love that I can still drive it today.
  6. I finished mine last night! Loved the build (other than the ball diff!) and it has been my most successful body shell for both painting and decals. Not driven it yet other than to check the alignment in the front steering. Can’t wait to get this out on the track! Thanks for all the inspiration in this tread πŸ‘πŸ»
  7. I have been wondering about the stabilisers and also considering the gear diff. Interested to hear how it works out.
  8. Hi, Odd request but does anyone know of somewhere to get some carbon fibre decal sheets in 1/10th scale? I am planning a build at the moment and would love to have some carbon fibre detailing on the shell but no ideas how to do it! Thanks in advance to any geniuses out there πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»
  9. First time trial video on the 2022 track! Can’t wait for the next run 😎
  10. Final test run of the season! You can see the evolution of the track also on my YouTube channel, playlist below: OAG Track Season 2
  11. Hello everyone, I am back for another season of backyard fun this year with a new improved track! We have upgraded from a loop to a figure of 8!! I know… super high tech πŸ˜‚ There is also a jump in place for this season using some skateboard ramps and some plastic matting I had knocking about the garden. The track is very much a work in progress but it should provide plenty of amusement this spring/summer. I do have bigger plans going into 2023 but more about that later. Please enjoy the video below all about how I am going to run the cars and how this years leaderboard will work. Hope those interested enjoy the content.
  12. @BloodClod that is a great write up and thanks a bunch! is the front steering limited like on the TD4? I heard guys removing the stoppers in the Td4 but I haven’t seen anything similar in the TD2 yet.
  13. thanks to everyone who watching my videos πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»
